Sunday Cinema – “200 Motels”

For October’s “Sunday Cinema” we thought we would look at some obscure movies starring some of the pillars of rock music.

Frank Zappa has been a influence on modern rock through his avant-garde music and stage presence. From his first appearance on the Steve Allen show playing music on a bicycle (!) to writing a parody song that exposed a whole new teen language (“Valley Girl”), Frank has always bucked the norm. In the movie, “200 Motels”, he tells the tale of what it’s like to tour with the Mothers of Invention. Today’s entry for Sunday Cinema delves into the movie with the 1988 release of a documentary of the movie entitled, “The True Story of 200 Motels” with behind-the-scenes action of the making of the film.

Someone posted an awful VHS copy of it online
